31 Days of Halloween Day 19 - Boo to You

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hi from Laurie and happy to be back with you during this month long 31 Days of Halloween celebration.
The second half of the month we are adding a twist to our Halloween theme - pets.  So your projects are still in the Halloween mode but with the added element of pets - and the kind of pet is up to you!

For this project I used the  Coffee Chihuahua stamp from Lost Coast Designs, the  Grunge Black Swirl from Carmen's Veranda, and the Large Chicken Wire background stamp from Lost Coast.
My background was created with a Gelli plate and some thick orange paint and a circle stencil.  I stamped atop it with the Grunge Black Swirl stamp, using orange ink, then added some of the Chicken Wire stamp here and there with black ink.  I cut this into a square shape and layered it with black card stock.

I next stamped my Chihuahua onto kraft paper with black ink and cut him out.  He is holding a coffee cut, but I cut that out so he could be holding the "Boo" sign.  I restamped his eyes onto white paper, cut those out, and affixed them atop the original stamped image.  I colored his little pointy teeth with a white marker and gave the studs on his collar a bit of gold marker.  I then cut out some dragon wings and attached those to his back.  Then he gets placed right in the middle of my card front.

I love this Chihuahua stamp because it's such fun to figure out what you can have him holding.  Last year I made a Halloween card, and he was holding a pumpkin.  It will be fun to figure out next year what's in his tiny little grip!

So come join the fun at the Portal and show us your creepy crawly Halloween projects for a chance to win some free stamps!
